Customize Error Pages

Customize Error Pages

When an authorization error occurs, and your callback URL is valid, the Authorization Server returns the appropriate error and state parameters to your callback URL. If your callback URL is invalid, your application will display the default Auth0 error page.

Your application may also display the default Auth0 error page for reasons other than an invalid callback URL, such as:

  • Required parameters are missing when calling the Auth0 Authentication API Login endpoint.

  • User opens an expired password reset link (when using the Classic Universal Login Experience).

  • User navigates to a bookmarked login page and a Default Login Route is not specified.

Parameters

If you choose to configure a custom error page, the Authorization Server will return parameters appended to the URL as a query string.

Parameter Description
client_id Identifier of the Auth0 application.
connection Connection used at the time of error.
lang Language set for use at the time of error.
error Status code of the error.
error_description Description of the error.
tracking Identifier used by Auth0 to find errors in internal logs.

Parameters presented vary depending on the error type and are specific to the request. For example, if the request which resulted in an error did not contain a client_id, the Authorization Server will not return the client_id parameter.

Display a custom error page

If you want to display a custom error page, you have two options:

  1. Redirect users to a custom error page using either the Auth0 Dashboard or the Auth0 Management API.

  2. Configure Auth0 to render a custom error page on your behalf via the Management API.

Redirect users to a custom error page using the Dashboard

Use the Dashboard to configure Auth0 to redirect users to a custom error page:

  1. Navigate to Auth0 Dashboard > Tenant Settings.

  2. Locate the Error Pages section.

  3. Select the Redirect users to your own error page option.

  4. Enter the URL of the error page you would like your users to see, and select Save.

Redirect users to a custom error page using the Management API

Use the Management API Update Tenant Settings endpoint. Replace the {mgmtApiAccessToken} placeholder value with your Management API Access Token, and update the value of the url field in the JSON body to point to the location of the error page.
